Home for Christmas - card by Celeste Mookherjee
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…


To me this image embodies the idea of welcoming family and friends to share the Christmas holiday. I captured this in the Naples section of Long Beach, when I walked along many of the canals to enjoy the holiday decorations. I thought the understated, old-fashioned elegance of this decorated entryway seemed especially welcoming.

    So welcoming indeed… lovely and old-fashioned and elegant as you say….and, of course, you photographed it all expertly… viewed large really displays the tonal ranges you deal with so effectively… from the shadow area behind the fern and next to the soldier to the bright lights at the opposite side…. Wow…really good stuff, Celeste. I like how you took the steps in also in your foreground.. as though we are walking right up to that front door…. knock knock…

  • Thank you, Katherine! The steps are actually critical to setting the “welcome” mood, and I was quite taken with the simple and effective decorations. Not everything in that area is quite so tasteful, but it is a fun place to go walking around Christmas because there are contests and so everyone decorates!
